Renowned Slovenians in Medjugorje

date: 22.05.2005.

Renowned Slovenians Alojz Rebula and Zora Tavčar came to Medjugorje in the mid of May. Alojz Rebula, member of the Pontifical Academy of science and art is the most productive Slovenian writer and translator. He translated the Holy Scripture into Slovenian language, and several documentary films were made about him in Slovenia and in Italy. This is what he said about his experience of Medjugorje. “I have to be grateful to one of my teachers for Medjugorje. It is with him that I came to Medjugorje for the first time in 1983. I wrote then my first article about Medjugorje, because of my very positive experiences. I was also very impressed by my conversation with Fr. Ljudevit Rupcic. I think today that Medjugorje has become od of the greatest Marian Shrines in the world, at the level of Lourdes and Fatima. We only can desire now that the Church acknowledges this. For me, it is a great thing that Our Lady wants to show us that she is with us at every moment.” Zora Tavcar, a professor of Slovenian language, said about Medjugorje: “The conversion of my husband is Our Lady’s work. I told her to look at all my troubles, and I asked her to bring peace to me and to my family. I want to suggest to every one to come to Medjugorje and make the experience of the spiritual life and of peace.”
